The lift tickets are reasonable and kids 12 and under ski free which was nice. Blackjack is not as big as some of the other ski resorts in the area but it was pretty good. Parking is close by so you don't have to carry your gear far. When we left we pretty much skied right to the car. The... More

Great place for family & friends. The snow is outstanding & they have a wide variety of runs for every level. We head up every year & really enjoy BlackJack! Even the entertainment & food afterwards is top notch! Make the trip for a day - you will not be disappointed!

I have never ever skied before. Ever. Therefore, my experience is limited to here and here alone. That said, I had a pretty good time despite injuring myself. The staff was friendly, the facilities nice and clean, and blissfully warm. I rented equipment as well and, according to my more experienced companion, it was up to par. The runs themselves... More

New owner, new management, new attitude! A true "customer first" atmosphere. Great snow making lays down a nice base for the U.P.'s 200+ inches of annual snow. Very kid friendly on the hills & the best bartenders in the area, make Blackjack a great destination no matter what your priorities are.

We love Blackjack as it has terrain for all abilities and a great lodge. The kids love the snowboard park and we all meet at the bottom at the end of the day for a cocktail and entertainment.

Fair hill, friendly staff, groom good. Nothing wrong with hill just small and steep and for $99 pass can't go wrong.

My boyfriend and I spent the week of Valentine's in one of the trailside condos. The first day of skiing resulted in a knee injury so we decided Tuesday would be a good day to get toasty at the bar. We walked in with the intention to drop $100, but soon learned that was not the kind of bar where... More

We have enjoyed skiing as a family but have a hard time finding affordable places to rent equipment and lift tickets for a family of 4. We had a long weekend, so my husband did some searches for family, friendly ski areas within driving distance from our home. We chose Blackjack ski area because of their deals on lift tickets...

Blackjack isn't the biggest of the ski areas in Ironwood/Bessemer area but its lots of fun. The layout of the hill and variety of terrain makes its seem bigger. When we went the conditions were perfect, but we noticed the same thing at Indianhead. They do have better snow-making equipment with new guns. The staff was great and everyone was... More
